A billboard raising awareness about illegal organ harvesting in China sits by a South Calgary thoroughfare. Forums titled “State Organs” will be held in Calgary and Edmonton this weekend to explore the ongoing practice of illegal, forced organ harvesting from living Falun Gong practitioners incarcerated in China. Keynote speaker is human rights lawyer and Nobel prize nominee David Matas, who will discuss a new book he co-edited exposing China’s system of illegal organ harvesting: “State Organs: Transplant Abuse in China.” The issue was explored recently at a U.S. Congressional hearing as well as in UN side panel discussions.
